    As always, the game is played on the field not in some prognosticator's imagination. Time will tell. I'm prognisticating that we do a lot better than this guess.

    Here's the deal. The scandals have driven us into the ground. I hate it as much as you but I call it like I see it. What recruit is gonna want to come here and play for Bob Davie at this point. He needs to pull a major rabbit out of a hat this year. I would like to see him do that but I am guessing he probably won't. Let's hope Nunez has the balls to do what needs to be done at that point. A complete overhaul is what we are going to need with a young enthusiastic HC like what we have in Paul Weir.

    the "way you see it" is not necessarily even close to correct. "Calling" and "seeing" it in such a negative light with already talking about your​ direction for a replacement before even the first game is played is BS.

    I don't have a problem with 119 to start the season. We have traditionally been lower ranked, we are coming off a 3-9 season, we have an unproven QB, RB, OL, LB and DB. We have a new Offensive Coordinator teaching a new scheme and a Defensive Coordinator who is traditionally slow starting in getting his crew up to game speed.

    On paper, that is right where we probably should be.

    However, we know that QB is likely to pick up the game quickly, the RB's and WR's will step up their game to match Calvin Magee's new program and the rest of the offense will be clicking in a few games. The defense will hopefully gel quickly and the 119 ranking will be far too low by the end of the season.

    The Lobos need to use the 119 as motivation to improve, not as a reason to whine about they should be higher.....

    Defending national champs? Sure, they may have lost a lot but they always reload. I suspect there are a number of teams that can be in those top 2 spots. What does UNM have that would justify them being ranked higher? This is a serious question because I have not been following our football recruiting much lately. Did we get some highly rated guys that should have us higher than 119?

    Such pre-season rankings are like a house built on quicksand. Look at the #3 team from last season's pre-season ranking, Florida Sate. They finished 7-6. #35 on a composite ranking scale. https://www.masseyratings.com/cf/compare.htm

    Preseason rankings are really only good for one thing, motivation.

    Where do you think UNM should be on that list?

    There is talent on this team especially at WR. OL and QB are key. If the Tuioti or Jones have a breakout year we could have a turnaround season.

    What basis would any sports writer have to rank us higher? You know they are much more familiar with the P5 schools and the MWC schools that have previously made a mark. How many years did it take for Boise State to be given some due in the rankings? It really didn't happen until the beat TCU in the Fiesta Bowl (January 2010).

    UNM didn't make any real noise in the recruiting battles. Then the national publicity we get is when Davie gets suspended. I think even a MWC sportwriter with some knowledge of the Lobos would rank us any higher.
